Martyr Rufinus the Deacon at Sinope

Commemorated on April 7

The Holy Martyr Rufinus the Deacon, the Martyr Aquilina and 200 Soldiers with them suffered in around the year 310 in the city of Sinope on the Black Sea during the reign of the emperor Maximian (305-311). When the holy deacon Rufinus was put into prison for confessing Christianity, the martyr Aquilina showed concern. Therefore, she was also placed under guard. In prison they converted 200 soldiers to Christ by their miracles, and all of them were beheaded by the sword.
